Following its Middle East debut in the United Arab Emirates, the Bugatti W16 Mistral's next journey takes it to Riyadh. The roadster toured the capital of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia ahead of an exclusive preview event at the Bugatti Riyadh showroom.

While in the Saudi capital, the W16 Mistral's first stop was the King Abdullah Financial District, an area of buildings structured around a natural green riverbed, known in Arabic as a 'wadi'.

The W16 Mistral's 'X'-shaped taillights hint at the future of Bugatti design, while the black and yellow-themed interior pays homage to the favoured colours of the company's founder, Ettore Bugatti.

The roadster also introduces a new vision for Bugatti design, led by a new wider, deeper and more three-dimensional horseshoe grille, as well as a completely reinterpreted open-air Bugatti C-line, which wraps around the side air intake.

It now connects into the top edge of the side windows, and then three-dimensionally transforms across the top edge of the windscreen.

Named after a wind that heralds the new seasons in southern France, the powerful 1,578bhp W16 quad-turbo Bugatti W16 Mistral also serves as a final roadgoing swansong for the W16 engine.

The W16 Mistral's last stop will be the Bugatti Riyadh showroom, which is operated by SAMACO Automotive - Bugatti's official partner in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The flagship site, one of the newest Bugatti showrooms in the world, is located within one of Riyadh's most sought-after districts.
